Theme for the girls' new rooms when we move to the house

The girls couldn't decide if they wanted to have a garden with butterflies themed room, or princess theme for their rooms. So, I said, "Why don't you have a 'Princess Butterfly Garden' theme? Oh, they were all over that! Combine all the favorite stuff. :) Rachel will be in her own room, and Michaela and Alyssa will share a room. Michaela and Alyssa's room is currently blue with Nascar trim around the top of the wall, so we'll be repainting their room first with a light peach color after taking down the Nascar trim. Rachel's room is currently decorated for a girl with yellow paint and a purple butterfly border at the top of the wall, with some kind of butterfly and princess wall stickers. So, since she kind of likes the way it is already, we won't be in a rush to change her room. But, we do want to eventually change it and make it our own. Rachel wants a light lavender color for the walls, and the wallpaper trim and stickers will come off. Plus the current yellow paint that is there is all marked up in places or scratched. Need something fresh and new eventually! Then, decorate with garden/butterfly/princess motif and decor.

I also want to paint over the red walls in the dining room with the gobi desert color I used in our home in Raleigh. LOVE that color, and we always get compliments on it. I love red in moderation, but red is just a little too busy and loud for me to be on a wall. Plus, it's a smaller dining room than I'm used to. Needs to be a lighter color. I'm all about light or neutral wall colors.
